Benefit Created for Former SISD Teacher

E-T reports retired teacher Ruby Knaack, now suffering from dementia and heart problems, was rescued from a fire last week that nearly destroyed her home. The former special education teacher with Stephenville ISD is recovering from smoke inhalation, but is expected to survive, according to her son Darrow Cannon. A passerby reportedly alerted him to the fire at his mother’s house on CR 386 about 8 p.m. Wednesday. Much of the home was destroyed, but it’s not a total loss. Subsequently, a benefit for Ruby Knaack has been set up at TexasBank and McCoy’s Building Supply.
